bfvgirlplayer, Renter in 32792

I am interested in a listing in Altamonte Springs, Fl, but after contacting the lister I am worried its a scam? What should I do to be sure?

Asked by bfvgirlplayer, 32792 Mon Jun 6, 2011

This is my first time moving out and renting my own place, so I have no idea how to go about it. Should I get a real estate agent to help? I really like this property, but the lister doesn't live in the US, and i know that is a bad sign... Who should I contact for help?

bfv,

Foreign or absentee owners that equire advanced payments, credit card information, or other personal information should be regarded as a "red flag."

Short additional information, you should likely go with your "gut feeling." Avoiding this option may be your bst approach. Move on and explore other options.
